I’ve been to several cities that have nice parks to walk in, but never actually hiking, like Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. We had fine scottish weather for our hike, meaning it was foggy and drizzly, but not raining hard enough to ruin the day. And the rocks looked pretty in the fog anyways. Also, since the fog obscured our view, we didn’t feel any guilt about not getting to the top. I think we did enough walking up and down hills just around the city anyways.
Thistle! Because you can’t go to Scotland and not take a picture of thistle.
It was a really pretty park, and we got to see some of the natural environment without leaving the city. And when were were done, the pub was pretty close.
